Nokia Head of Design talks about the N1 Android tablet: not many products are so well made
The Nokia N1 won’t be released before early 2015, but it seems that it already warms the hearts of Nokia and Android fans altogether. Not long after announcing the N1, Nokia posted a video in which Axel Meyer, the company’s Head of Design, talks about the look and feel of the slate. The main idea is that the Nokia N1 is a simple device - they “removed everything that wasn’t necessary,” thus making it more natural to use, allowing you to focus on the experience that you’re having, not on the object itself.
The Nokia N1 is made out of aluminum and, at 200.7 x 138.6 x 6.9 mm and 318 grams, it’s thinner and lighter than Apple’s iPad mini 3 - which appears to be its main competitor. The new tablet features a 7.9-inch display with 1536 x 2048 pixels, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, a 64-bit, 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 5300 mAh battery.
